Hot damn. That about sums it up. This sucker wails from start to finish. In the 1st set FOTD and Sugaree are both beyond exemplary. Don't know what it was about 1980, but these two tunes were consistently shredded by the boys. Sailor/Saint? Haunting and Spacey. China/Rider? Sweet. The second set keeps up the fire with an absolutely stellar Estimated>Terrapin>Playin. Then the Dew is a true highlight. Throughout the show, Jerry's fingers are moving with that fluid speed that just kills me. In addition, for me, Jerry's voice in the late 70's/early 80's was spot on and this show really shows him in his prime. Great Monday kick-off.

PS. This is one of those AUD sources that I prefer over the SBD as it is full and sharp with a spot-on bottom end.
